MADISON -- State Rep. Brett Hulsey has announced his candidacy for governor.
 
Hulsey, a Madison Democrat, is the fourth Democrat to declare a bid for governor. Mary Burke, Marcia Mercedes Perkins and Hariprasad Trivedi have declared their candidacies. Burke is widely viewed as the front runner among those three, however.
 
Hulsey says he has a plan to reinvest more than $2 billion to create clean energy jobs, increase job training and send more money to public schools, the University of Wisconsin System and technical colleges.
 
Hulsey has been in the state Assembly for four years and served on the Dane County Board for 14 years. He runs an energy and environmental consulting business.
 
A Burke campaign spokesman didn't immediately return a message Monday morning. Neither did a Walker campaign spokeswoman.
